hours together, probably the most intense conversations and time netanyahu and obama have ever spent together. obama has said there is not any leader he has sat with more than netanyahu. this is the most intense period of time that they have had. each one has sober expectations. they have been at this for four years. obama knows that they have different political visions. and it cannot do know is that netanyahu -- netanyahu knows obama is less inclined towards intervention. this could be a good thing. from the israel side, my sense is -- hear about the layout howe saw the conversation and then lay out some other key points, syria, lebanon, and the palestinian issue -- on iran, i think it is clear that men -- that netanyahu people go in, when we hear that certain weaponry has been moved out of the goals, or diplomacy has been indecisive, how do they relate to that? the red line that denis mentioned and the iaea report -- they are down in a uranium. netanyahu will say, i have been vindicated and with red lines. i told you so, mr. president trip obama will say, maybe that means we have
is between president obama and prime minister netanyahu on the issue of boxing iran in so to speak? >> i think he has lost that fight at least for the time being. the president, in an interview he gave to israel television a few days ago, said that he thinks it's probably a year before iran can acquire a nuclear weapon so there's still time for negotiations. you may recall that in his u.n. general assembly speech when he held up that diagram of the bomb and the red line drawn across the top of it, that netanyahu talked about the summer of this year being the critical moment. now, what's happened since then is that the iranians seem to have recognized netanyahu's red line and as they acquire through the centrifuge cascade process enriching uranium 20%, as they get closes to one bomb's worth, bibi's red line, they've been moving some of that enriched material off into fuel rods which make it harder for them to use for a nuclear weapon so they're staying beneath bibi's red line for the time being and as long as they do that,
all the tension there has been between myself, president obama and benjamin netanyahu iran, that could be the other audience saying i'm going to stand with israel against you. he might be trying to signal to tehran that even though he does not get along with benjamin netanyahu, the premier, he will thwart iran's nuclear program. this is a meet and greet type initiative. we'll have to see if something of substance comes out of it. i'm doubtful. >> michael: it sounds like you're doubtful. but tell us little bit more about that relationship that you alluded to. what is the relationship between obama and netanyahu like? >> it's very, very tense obviously. three years ago to the week is when vice president joe biden went to jerusalem, a trip that i covered for the "washington post," and to do the very same thing, make nice to israelis, to reassure them that they have u.s. support at a time when they feel isolated regionally and internationally. that trip blew up when there was an israeli announcement during the trip of new settlement construction in east jerusalem. this led to a harsh rebuk
, and -- no expense is being scared. three years ago, benjamin netanyahu publicly lectured president obama about the realities of middle eastern politics in his own office. the president looked on ashen face. spokesman are said to regard the other with suspicion, and despite recent efforts to dispel that perception, there is still no special chemistry. >> they had issues. i can recall the issues. there was some kind of tension between both sides, but even though they seem to say we must understand, we must remember, but behind personal feelings, there are interests. >> the state of the economy and social affairs was a big issue in the recent israeli elections. barack obama is likely to find a new israeli government less concerned about peace talks but very preoccupied about the unstable state of the wider region. what mr. obama will hear from his israeli counterparts is israel is very jittery. they are preparing for a fallout as syria disintegrates and hezbollah rearms. >> we are getting ready to shoot back and to be much more aggressive or much more decisive in this war in order to make this wa
netanyahu. then in jerusalem, president obama will hold separate meetings with netanyahu and peres. the form he residence already hoisting a u.s. flag and even rolled out a red carpet for the president. while in jerusalem, mr. obama will also view the dead sea scrolls and visit an official holocaust memorial. the center piece of this trip will be a speech to israeli college and university students. the president will receive a medal of distinction. the trip also includes a trip to the west bank with a stop in ramallah. he will meet with mr. abbas. he will also visit the church of the nativity in bethlehem. then the president will travel to jordan and meet with king abdullah. joining us to talk about his trip, p.j. crowley and msnbc contributor, good to see both of you this afternoon. >> nice to see you. >> p.j., let's start with you. this is opposite of his 2009 trip. this is what some have called a double kiss to the israelis and palestinians at the same time. a lot of analysis and scrutiny has been devoted to the relationship between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. just in the past
intense conversation of time that netanyahu and obama ever spent together. obama said there's no leader he has except more time with than than netanyahu. but each one has -- there's some sober expectations. they have been at this four years already. obama knows that netanyahu maybe doesn't have rabbi ins -- each one comes to the meeting with more sober expectations, and that could be a good thing, i think. i would say that -- from the israel side, my sense is that, i just thought i would lay out how i saw that conversation and lay out some other key points, sirra, lebanon, and the palestinian issue. on the iran issue, i think it's clear that the netanyahu people go in believing what does it take away when they hear the sequester has been moved or that diplomacy has been in their view indecisive. how do they relate to that? and so -- then there's the red line that dennis mentioned and the iaea report in which the israeli said there's 180-kilograms of 20% our rainum. now they're down to 168. so, netanyahu will say i've been vindicated. redlines work. i told you so, mr. president. and netanya
with obama is that he went after netanyahu on absolutety wrong issue. he demanded a comprehensive freeze, then the president backs down alienating both the israelis and the palestinians and the arabs. >> rose: we conclude with hank greenberg and the a.i.g. story and why he is suing the government on behalf of the stockholders after the government bailed out a.i.g. and paid back the money with interest. >> the fact had to come out what really happened. the so-called accounting scandal turned out toe virally nothing. the corporate governance of the united states changed after enron. boards became more critical of almost anything that everybody was doing but i wanted -- more importantly i wanted the 92,000 people that helped build a.i.g. and all the things they did to make it the greatest insurance company in history. that story had to be told on their behalf as well. >> rose: a president's visit and the story of hank greenberg when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: president obama will travel to the mi
is still very strong even if the personal chemistry between netanyahu and president obama is not strong and it has been widely reported they don't have a very good working relationship. one of the main reasons for coming not just to israel, but jordan and the west bank right now. that was for the united states to shore up friends. the united states still as a friend of israel. if you look back at the larger regional issues, the chaos around us. the united states is worried about its friends and that israel is surrounded by an increasingly hostile region and egypt is no longer a reliable ally and jordan could face their own internal threats and syria on the border is in a state of chaos and mayhem and iran is also working on its nuclear program and the united states wants to come give a hug to israel. wants to make sure that the palestinian authority with abbas is being strengthened because it's overshadowed by hamas. he wants to make sure the kingdom doesn't fall. it's really about settling and shoring up your friends in these uncertain times. >> the issue of iran, we are at war here in
: david makovsky, what do you see? >> basically both president obama and netanyahu were elected on a more domestic platform. martin is 100% right in the way he depicted it. basically the israelis see the middle east and see things very murky, very tumultuous, uncertain. they don't feel they have an ability to shape this middle east. they don't know where egypt is going. they don't know if syria is disintegrating in front of their eyes. they said, look, one thing they can make a difference is the domestic scene. what they basically have i think is two sets of issues. one, a desire to integrate the ultraorthodox into the work force, into the military which is compulsory for everyone but the ultraorthodox and to wean away the ultraorthodox from being the primary welfare class. the second thing is that netanyahu, lapid that we saw in the set-up piece and this guy bennett both have kind of a neo liberal economic reform approach. they want to move quickly on those sorts of things. those are, i'd say, the two main domestic drivers. >> brown: when we get to the thing we always talk about israeli-
. president obama's second term, netanyahu's third. they are stuck with each other. they have huge challenges. iran, syria, perhaps the israeli-palestinian process down the road. no one expects them to be best buddies but if they can get along better, and i want to emphasize, both governments stressed that workingwise, professionally they get their business done. they may not like each other but they get business done. relationships always help in difficult situations. so, i think that is one of the priorities to try to become more friendly, if not best friends. and the iran question is huge. i spoke to the israeli president, perez, this morning and he says there's a greater understanding now the israelis believe and have no hesitation that the mepresident means when end the military option will be on the table and will not iran to get a warhead. now they believe the president, there's nor flexibility on the israeli side to give diplomacy more time. >> three decades after camp davis, asking the israeli-palestinian peace process. when the vice president was there, settlement building went ahea
in jerusalem and in the afternoon with prime minister netanyahu. thursday president obama will go to the west bank where he will meet with palestinian authority president abbas. he will return to jerusalem for a speech on thursday night and friday the president will visit jordan. he will meet with king abdullah. he has a number of speeches and planned visits along the way. president obama will return to washington on saturday. >>> yesterday, two former middle east advisors to the white house talked about the potential implications of president obama's trip. the speakers were dennis ross, who served under president obama and mining call singh, who advised president george w. bush. this was hosted by the washington institute. it is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon. good afternoon and welcome to the washington institute. i'm rob satlof, the director of the institute. i'm happy to welcome all of you here today. just at the outset if i could please remind you, cell phones off please, not just on, on vibrate but off completely. this event is being live streamed for our thousands of fans around t
that's where the obama administration, as aaron pointed out, made a mistake i think they hit netanyahu very hard on settlements while at the same time extending a hand to the iranians. that did not go over very well with a variety of israelis. here israel was a staunch ally of the united states. had come up 16 years in which presidents were in love with their israeli counterparts as aaron pointed out and here was the new president taking a very hard stance on settlements while at the same time telling the iranians he'll talk to them about anything anywhere at any time i think that could have been handled differently. i think obviously we've been dancing around the issue of settlements for a very long time. this is a central issue in the conflict. >> rose: aaron, are the israelis doing things that make a palestinian settlement increasingly difficult? >> sure. >> rose: are they doing it because they don't want to see a settlement? they don't want to see an agreement? >> politicians respond to immediate pressures. you've got a series of israeli politicians since 1967 and prime ministerers
of the agenda for president obama and prime minister netanyahu as well as with president obama and the palestinian leadership. the king who wants this very much, it's in his own best interests believes that israeli settlements have moved so far into the west bank, which would be of course the base of a palestinian state, that so many settlers have moved so deep into the territory that it's going to be impossible soon to separate these two sides. and what he says is if you don't have the ability to disentangle the israelis from the palestinians what you're going to be left with is a single unitary state with two groups of people who hate each other. he thinks it is a formula for endless violence and sorrow and is pushing very hard the moderate palestinians to come back to the table and pushing even harder to get the israelis to focus on this, what he sees as a problem not only for the israelis but the palestinians and the jordanians as well. >> thanks for joining us. >>> are you finding that you're getting lingering looks in yoga class lately? well, it might be because everyone
, will be on the table when president obama sits down with prime minister netanyahu. >> i believe for something like five hours or talks. nbc's kristen walker. thank you, kristen. >>> joining us, mark ginsburg. and dana milbank, political columnist for the "washington post." ambassador, if i can start with you, senators lindsey graham and john mccain say if the chemical weapons reports prove true, the president's red line has been crossed. and graham tell s "foreign policy's" josh rogen, we need to come up with a plan to secure these weapon sites either in conjunction with our partners or, if nothing else, by ourselves. what's your reaction to today's developments? >> well, if these reports are corroborated, martin, clearly the situation in syria, which you know you and i have talked about for at least two years, it indicates that, and as we all know, these weapons are not under lock and key. i had revealed in a piece that, indeed, they had been put under control of the besiege and elements of the iranians, revolutionary guards for safekeeping. given the fact hezbollah and any number of terrorist organiz
gives president obama and prime minister netanyahu the opportunity to show the world their relationship has room to grow. and both men are ready to take positive steps for the region. florida congresswoman debby wasserman-schultz chairs the democratic national committee, is in israel and joins me now. >> thanks, luke. >> there's criticism thrown at president obama, even from prominent jewish democrats, the latd ed koch, who said president obama had let the very important relationship with israel deteriorate. as one of the highest-ranking jewish democrats in the united states. how important is it for president obama to have a successful visit in israel? >> the late ed koch endorsed president obama's re-election. this is an important opportunity to reaffirm and celebrate the incredible and historic relationship that the united states and israel have. president obama will travel there, and it was important to make sure that as the first overseas trip he's making in his second term that he go there and reach out to the future of the israeli people. talk with, with university students and yo
. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back
